The contention didn’t end there.
“If a guy has a clear lane to the basket, if you can’t [get] there then let him go. You can’t try to take him out. Obviously, not everybody abides by those rules.”
I have to side with Portis here. Satoransky didn’t have a clear lane to the basket. Portis got there in time to get a lot of ball. It’s unfortunate how hard Satoransky fell, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Portis was dirty or even reckless.
This back-and-forth probably only increases the odds of a more deliberate dustup when the Bulls and Wizards play April 1.
